Our New Backyard; Before and After Photos

If you’ve been following the last few posts, I’ve highlighted the changes in our backyard. As of a few weeks ago, it’s finally finished.

Here are a few more pictures during the construction:

We are incredibly pleased with our new outdoor space and excited for the cool fall weather to use the fire pit.

Now, the before and after photos:

Starting to Look Like a Patio

Over the last few days our backyard has undergone some huge transformations.

Dump trucks full of gravel and sand have been brought in with a bobcat and the ground is now perfectly level.

Last Friday, the sitting wall got started and today pavers began to be laid. Looks like surface is about 75% completed now. Here are a few pictures of the progress.

Goodbye Concrete Slab

Ever since we’ve moved into our house (August 2010), we’ve hated our outdoor living space.

Our house had a 12′ by 12′ concrete slab, which wasn’t quite big enough for our six person table, grill and tower garden. When we had people over, we brought out the folding chairs and table and placed them on the uneven grass.

Well, today is the last day for the old concrete slab. Tomorrow a local company, Deal’s Landscaping, will be cleaning out the old and preparing for our new paver patio.

Here are some before images:
